Is Sugar the cause of depression? Can it cause anxiety? 

Sugar causes inflammation of the brain. Insulin resistant fat cells pack on when you eat too much sugar. These 'Cytokines’' damage and cause swelling to the brain. So not only does the BELLY swell, the BRAIN does too. Therefore causing depression.

Psychiatrists are starting to treat depression with diabetic drugs to lower blood sugar, lower insulin and reduce inflammation.
